maze anthologyBy Scott Goldfine

Maze featuring Frankie Beverly, the least-known highly successful R&B band of the past 20 years, is chronicled in the two-CD set “Anthology.” Representative of the group’s eight gold albums with Capitol Records from 1977-1986, these 20 selections include studio and live takes of hits like “Running Away,” “Joy and Pain” and “Happy Feelings.”

This classy release is elevated by Beverly’s elegant pipes.
